Vlad worked for the KGB to appease his uncle. Working closely with Arkady Ivanovich, he became closely acquainted and Vlad started to take a liking to his profession. He also made friends with Nina, colleague and FBI informant for counterintelligence agent, Stan Beeman. It is unknown whether he held any romantic feelings for her but was implied by one of Nina's co-workers.
He is kidnapped by the FBI due to a hasty decision by Stan when his covert and unofficial plan to kidnap Arkady (as revenge for the killing of some FBI operatives during the events of Mutually Assured Destruction) goes sideways as Arkady cancels their regular jog together. Stan,who was at first hesitant about going ahead with the plan at all,decided to join upon learning of the sudden disappearance of his friend and partner Chris Amador (supposedly caused by the KGB according to him) and as an act of desperation orders the kidnapping of Vlad instead of the original target Arkady. Stan then tries to negotiate the release of Amador with that of Vlad's but learns of his failure upon discovering Amador's death.A then enraged Stan decides to avenge his friends death by killing Vlad,(after deceiving him to reveal his relations with the KGB) thus becoming even.
